Frequently Asked Questions

 

What exactly is a home inspection?

A home inspection examines the physical and operational condition of a property through visual means and through testing of plumbing fixtures, electrical systems, appliances and heating and air conditioning systems. Inspections include the roof, foundation, water drainage, walls, floors, windows, doors, and more. Home inspections do not include inspection for living organisms including mold and/or termites. However we will comment if we see evidence of water, mold or insect infestation and/or damage from any of those, and advise further review by the appropriate contractors. 

 

How long will the inspection take?

A typical home inspection takes from 2-3 hours depending on the home's size, condition, and features. Properties with a crawlspace (raised foundation) will often require and additional 20 min to fully inspect.   

 

Who should attend the inspection?

We always encourage buyers and their agent to attend the inspection. Buyers that attend have a better understanding of the property as viewed by the inspector and are better able to read and interpret the final report. The buyer's attendance also helps them understand the scope of a home inspection as well as the limitations.

 

How soon I schedule an inspection?

We usually require 1-2 days lead time to schedule an inspection. 

 

Do you have professional liability insurance?

Yes, we are fully insured up to $500,000 in general liability and carry professional Errors and Omissions insurance. 

 

Are you involved with any other local businesses?

We are not involved in any other business. In accordance with the CREIA┬« Standards of Practice, we do not participate in any referral or construction related activities. Such relationships could prevent us from maintaining our honest and impartial perspective.
